of the board. i'm the attorney -- members of the board. i'm the attorney for booker t. washington. ly keep my notes short. i would also like to point out that i have submitted into the record extensive letters on both the e.i.r. as well as the c.u. let me just say to begin with very briefly on the preapproval process, this project went before the planning commission and the e.i.r., the environmental review applications was submitted first in 2006. the department published a notice of determination that an e.i.r. would be required in 2008. then they began the draft e.i.r. process and that was accomplished on june 23 -- published on june 23, 2010. so the appellant can hardly say that somehow this project was preapproved because the mayor's office of housing decided to make some grand money to do predevelopment activity. up cannot do an environmental impact report without any money. you cannot do an environmental impact report without an architectural plan or elevation for the department to analyze and that is the money that was loaned to booker t. by the mayors over housing so that they can mak
